The History of Our Church … contd
* Update. An important step was taken in the life of our fellowship at the Annual General Meeting, 25th May 2011. After long and prayerful consideration, the church and minister unanimously decided to withdraw from the Baptist Union of Scotland. The decision was taken as a consequence of the Union's increasing ecumenical activities, with its adoption of issues contrary to the Word of God in order to facilitate theological and doctrinal appeasement. For example, their companionship with the Action of Churches Together in Scotland. Also, concerning their endorsement of the Baptist Missionary Society's acceptance of homosexuality as an acceptable Christian lifestyle, (see Mission and Sexuality) and the rejection of Israel's presence in the land God restored to them in 1948 (see Kairos Palestine).
